Zamboanga City Revives Kite Festival To Boost Tourism

How do you feel about this story?


The local government is holding a kite festival for the first time in two years to help revive the city’s tourism industry.

Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco-Salazar said part of the festival is the kite flying competition slated at 3 p.m. Sunday at the scenic Paseo del Mar.

The annual kite festival was suspended in 2020 following the coronavirus disease-19 pandemic.

“We are inviting kite enthusiasts to join the competition and help promote tourism,” Salazar said Thursday.

There are two main categories in the competition: teen (13-17-years-old) and adult (18-years-old and above). Special awards will be given according to the two kite categories: the traditional kite and the figure kite.

The traditional kite is the 2-D or two-faced kite that comes in any shape whereas the figure kite is the 3-D kite with a theme and comes in realistic shapes.

A participant may register only one kite as entry to the competition. Kites for each age category will be made to fly in groups and the participants will be assisted by marshals during the launch.

The kites will be given a five-minute launch period and a retry for failure to take-off. Kites that fail to take off the second time are disqualified. (PNA)
